skill. we have gravity. that gravity won't change. the president won't suddenly become bill clinton the next four years. wasn't the last four years and won't be the next four years. either things will get done through more staff contact and cabinet secretaries and outreach and they won't get done and he won't change and become a different person. >> we're not asking him to call bill clinton. we have legislation in the balance. >> we've been talking about it this for four years. it's not going to change, not in his character. he doesn't like to do it, won't start doing it. >> after the president got elected again, made the joke my daughters don't really want to see me that much any more so i will have more time to call. >> there's still espn, there's still the duce. >> exactly. i'm flummoxed, i really am, why he can't pick up the phone, especially republicans on gun legislation, sticking their necks out and crossing the nra. doesn't look like he will change. >> the legislative theory of the case is maybe joe biden and jack mcdonagh, will produce overwh m overwhelming majorities in t
tax federal spending. then, larry clinton on the federal cyber security alliance. then a talk about north korea's nuclear program. ♪ host: good morning, welcome to "washington journal." "the new york times" reports that the white house is working on an immigration bill as a backup plan. in case congress does not come up with its own legislation. the president is seeking executive action. we would like to hear what you think about president obama using executive orders to work around congress. here are the numbers to call. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. you can also find us online. sadness a tweet at -- send us a tweet at you can also e-mail us at this story is from bloomberg news. host: looking at one of the executive orders that he assigned -- that he signed an tuesday, it relates to cyber security and cyber issues. the president issued an executive order designed to strengthen the cyber security of critical infrastructure last week, which some say could get
, 1989, 1990, 1991, the democratic party was dead. george h.w. bush was going to win. bill clinton wins. and republicans are dead. two years later, we come in because newt dominates. then it's bill clinton. i mean, it takes -- everybody talks about how the republican party's in horrible shape. and they are in horrible shape, but they need one strong leader. >> oh, yeah. a good one. >> when allen west says there's 78 communists, go hey, idiot, shut up. no, they're not. when you get a republican president, they can do it. >> they can do it. and allen west knows that his phone's going to ring when he says it. >> right. so he won't say it. >> exactly. and so not until a leader emerges, you're just going to have your fist in your forehead a lot because they're just going to outdo each other. and parties go through this. we went through it. >> joe's come up with, i think, a great frame on this. you were advising president clinton, then governor clinton in '91. you talked about the middle class, frankly the values of the party had strayed from -- or at least the public view separated from the
ones people raise. what they miss, is what would bill clinton have been without a second term. it wasn't the lewinsky issue that matters in the end but when he left office we had a surplus and that the triangulation worked and was able to have a balanced budget and couldn't have done it without a second term. we don't dwell on ronald reagan's iran-contra debacle. the fact of the matter is reagan's great diplomacy with mikhail gorbachev, margaret thatcher said reagan won the cold war without firing a single shot and occurred because reagan is taking the trips and meeting with gorbachev to end the cold war. but the point i'm making is this notion of the division of first and second terms and all the polls we see is a little bit overwrought. if second terms were so bad, f.d.r. woopt have had a third or fourth there is truth you lose some of your in the sense barack obama won't run again and people realize his power is limited, his clock is running so it's sometimes harder to do legislative deals in the second term, on the other hand, barack obama can sign executive order after ex
the night of september 11th and when secretary clinton said she had a clear eyed view of the threats we faced in libya, the secretary of defense and chairman of the joint chiefs said they knew that night it was a terrorist attack and knew of the reporting coming out of libya from ambassador stevens says we cannot defend the consulate. she was not clear eyed. she was blind and deaf and the president of the united states never picked up the phone to call anybody in libya to help these four people under attack. the first ambassador killed in 30 years. they withheld information. i think they manipulated the evidence after the attack to create a political narrative rather than sharing with the public the truth about an al-qaeda attack that was preplanned and precoordinated. we will get to the bottom of this. >> chris: let me ask you one more question about the sequester before we let you go, senator. you know if we go into the sequester the president is going to hammer republicans. the white house has already put out a list of the terrible things that are going to happen if a sequester kicks
. because remember, in '95 or '96 with -- under the gingrich/dick armey congress bill clinton was able to force them to raise the minimum wage and there were those referenda you talked about. one of the key points that ought to be made and one of the reasons why older studies -- we no longer -- the minimum wage does not apply very much in manufacturing. when you are dealing with manufacturing, which is done across national lines, there could be some negative economic effect in terms of transferring out. we know people are ready to move jobs out. but overwhelmingly today, minimum wage jobs are in the service industries. if the restaurant down the street is charging a little more because of wages, you can't go to malaysia for a sandwich. and so it's food service. the supermarkets and restaurants. if you look at where the minimum wage has an effect, it is in those areas in america that are really not subject to foreign competition. because they're not making things. they are performing a service for which people need to be physically present. this is part of the test of whether or not the
and influential senator, a republican icon who voted to impeach president clinton over the lewinsky scandal. >> mr. domenici, guilty. >> he says truthfulness is the first pillar of a good character. >> i think there's an element of hypocrisy, no question. >> reporter: matt cooper says that now because we're finding out while domenici was blasting bill clinton, he was hiding from everyone, including his own family, that he fathered a child out of wedlock several years early and with the daughter of another republican legend, former republican senator paul laxalt. pete domenici has said that he's aware of this for several months. my past action has caused hurt and disappointment to my wife, children, family, and others. i deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. >> what do you make about the revelation and the timing so many years later? >> it seems like someone forced their hands. someone was going to write about it. so they thought they would come out and be forthright about it. >> indeed, michelle laxalt says, recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be tw
was in the majority party. speaker gingrich was the speaker. he worked with then-president bill clinton. we balanced the budget five of those fourteen years. it meant that there was compromise. this requires compromise. this requires republicans stepping forward with some ideas about how to keep essential services of government running at the level that people have been accustomed to. this is not rocket science. this is people coming together the way that other congresses have done to solve big issues. i suggest that my former colleagues on the republican side go see the movie "lincoln," because in the movie "lincoln," it shows how hard it was back then to get things done. but what lincoln did is he gathered people around him the way that i believe president obama is doing by calling republicans, talking to them, trying to work with them. and when that happens, big things get solved. the fiscal cliff got solved because people started talking to one another. so this can happen again. yes, ma'am. >> yes, have your phones been ringing from members of the public? and if so, what are they saying? >> i'm
to anything like that but it is was remarkable that he was one of the 4,000 a day according to the clinton justice department that do use a firearm in self-defense. obviously, he is pretty happy he was able to do so. >> next call comes from alabama. caller: good morning, sir. i'm a first time caller. appreciate c-span. my comments or issues are is that the majority of these people are talking about second amendment rights. they have to realize that the second amendment was written years and years ago. things do get amended. the people who we put there to control these laws, they are being controlled by lobbyists, the n.r.a. ena other groups also. let's see if we can contribute to these congressman and other people, who is going to protect us instead of doing what they want to do. guest: well, i think the caller is making an argument that is frequently made by people who have questions about the second amendment. yeah, the second amendment was written in the 18th century. so was the first amendment. yes, many years have gone by and firearms have developmented, technology has changed but we
's worth noting that senator domen everyone ici back in the late '90s voted to impeach clinton. he did say the impeachment was more about fact that president clinton lied under oath but called the president's behavior tawdry and cited the value of truthfulness. we now know at that very time he was hiding the fact that he had an adult son who he fathered out of wedlock. senator domenici and the woman involved, the daughter of paul laxalt have admitted they had a one night relationship. a statement issued by senator domenici said my past action caused hurt to my wife, children and others. for that i'm solely responsible. i deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. both domenici and michelle laxalt alluded to the belief that someone was going to go public. that's what prompted them to speak out. here's her statement. recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be 2015ed, rewritten out of whole cloth and shopped to press outlets large and small in a vicious attempt to smear, hurt and diminish pete domenici, an honorable marines his extraordinary wife, nancy
. the old broads on "the view" can perv over chany tatum and bill clinton and jack nicholson, he can go out and w a 25 -- but this corny white guy, musberger, pays the girl a compliment and they turn him into the old actor fred willard in a hollywood movie theater doing you know what. it was a disgraceful episode and she should give him a commission, you know, of whatever she's making right now because yes, he propelled her into -- >> bill: certainly that catapulted her. she's a model, i guess, and now she's making a lot more money than she did. you see it gutfeld which way is this. >> i'm really, really happy for her. when i broke up with her in 2005, she was never the same. i'm glad she's bounced back. she's met somebody new. i know it's been hard to find the same kind of quality that you could get in a man like me, but she seems -- she still looks pretty good. >> bill: gutfeld, this is a personal question, you don't have to answer it. but when you were dancing with katherine webb, where exactly did you come up to her? >> oh! i have special shoes. >> bill: lacey shoes? >> i just climb on
to ruin yours. bill clinton did his. >> the press jumped on you good. made a series of jokes you know the next night. >> the truth is i did it on purpose. it always wanted to be on this show in the worst way. >> neil: i think he went on to something a few years later. just like his wimpy predecessor, who could never win the white house but did. and that clueless "b" movie actor who could never win the role of a lifetime but did twice. you think lesson learned now. they would get laughed at, at the last laugh. be careful saying that marco is a zero for grasping h2o. maybe the media's looking at his parched lips rather that what is coming out of the lips proves his critics are clueless. how can he have a laugh at his own expense, unless he senses he will have the last laugh. this guy is still laughing. i suspect those who thoug
thing that stuck out to me about bill clinton was his willingness to compromise. i did not much like the guy, but he was a good compromise and. he knew -- compromiser. he knew how to reach across the aisle and the country benefited for it. now you have a guy that has no willingness to compromise. he is so far to the left and nobody will get past him. host: let's get a response from megan hughes. guest: kelly, your appreciation for what president clinton did, moving to the middle and brokering deals, it is certainly a valid point. in terms of whether or not president obama is a compromiser, one good group to ask would be some of the democrats because i think they would contend that when it comes to entitlement reforms and things he has put on the table that those would qualify as compromises, being open to potential means testing or peeling back medicare benefits for higher income earners. the idea of change to cpi, looking at that with social security reform -- there are definitely some things that have riled up fellow democrats. host: let's go back to the c- span bus and hear from t
in 1996 at the beginning of the president's first term, president clinton's first term, is now is the opportune time. so what we need to do as americans is to quit complaining and push these guys to make a compromise they have to make in order to get something real done that put our fiscal house in order spent as erskine said, he spent hours, and days, in his work as the last person to balance the budget in the united states by working with newt gingrich and dick armey. he often says you only one, but i don't -- but he's that kind of savvy, mr. steady. and if he can't, if you can't, and i admire him deeply, watched him, he's a tremendous man, he's the best of the best, if he with his skill and negotiating skills can't get us there, it won't get there. and the markets will do the shot. and they don't care a whit about who is president or they don't care a whit about democrats or a whit about republicans. they care about their money. and if anybody can't figure that out, you know, you have a rock for brains. >> you have the last word here. >> i don't want it to. [laughter] >> whe
it at "the washington post" today. strikes me bill clinton in 1998, the one time since the james monroe presidency that in the sixth year the white house is actually managed to pick up house seats and very hard to do that in the sixth year but what's the mood picking up among democrats in washington about how 2014 is shaping up for them and how the issues play in to them? >> i was asking that question today. they're not counting the chickens just yet. not only a different electorate in the polls in midterms, much more republican electorate than in presidential years, but you have a very different congress than in the mid-1990s. not that many districts up where obama -- where republicans sitting in seats obama won that district. there's not that much swing going on here. that doesn't mean democrats can't win back the house if things continue to go bad and what we're fighting over now put out a list of 27 members targeting over the sequester is a fight for this year to sort of set the stage for next year. still too far out to say democrats are in a position to win and we can say it's hard

has brought in bill clinton to bring in a word to it, and talk about how true to life politically it s. so who knows, who knows what kind of flesh clinton press sort so to speak. >> well, david, i want to ask you about another snub, best supporting actor category, and performance they would say is the performance of the year got nada, zippo, and look at this clip. >> in part of london. no one has yet claimed responsibility for what sources are calling a cyber terrorist assault on the british secret service. early reports from the scene indicate at least six dead, many more injured, with victims being evacuated to local hospitals within minutes of the explosion. >> david, you just saw the performance. wolf blitzer. outrage! i cannot believe this. there is a write-in campaign? >> there really ought to be a special award. >> it was a critical moment in that film too, "skyfall," a film that grossed over $1 billion at the box office. i had a major contributing little role over there, didn't i? >> agree, and i think you see daniel craig's expression when he hears that that was off you. >> ex
major address after taking over that position from hillary clinton. he's speaking at the university of virginia. let's listen in. >> maybe he knows something. i could learn a thing or two from them. we didn't overlap for long. but i want to tell everybody here that we know each other pretty well from service as a lieutenant-governor and when he was governor as the state. i was lieutenant-governor of my state. so we have that in common before being senators. i will tell you a quick story. i don't know -- what you -- i don't know what you do in virginia as lieutenant- governor. but massachusetts, once upon a time calvin coolidge was lieutenant-governor. he was at a dinner party and his interim governor turned to him and said what do you do? he said i'm the interim governor of massachusetts. he said wow! that must be interesting. he said tell me all about the job. and he says i just did.

house, make no mistake. when i worked for bill clinton, we did the same thing. we wanted to bypass the national media. bill: this is local television. you did not have google hankouts, facebook online town hall meetings. seems like that is their strategy lately, to go around the press corps in washington and another example here in san francisco. but, doug, there are stories being written about the dangers of overconfidence. when you win a second term and you begin that second term. do you see that? >> well, i've seen the stories. his great asset, bluntly and i think monica might even agree with my, are the republicans. the "usa today poll" numbers, pew has them at record low of 22% favorable. in the absence of real opposition the account is able to get away with this. he knows the media is the real opposition. so he is hiding out as much as he can, bypassing them, going directly to the american people, using social media, the web and local t. have. bill: monica? >> that is one of the great ironies doug says, he thinks the media is the enemy in some way. this media has been such a
to president clinton. and marc thiessen, a former speech writer for george w. bush. >> megyn: so your take on those two varying messages, marc? >> it's very simple. the president proposed these cuts and signed them into law and came up with them and did it by the way for political reasons not economic reasons. and to create something that congress would avoid. he did it because he didn't want another debt limit strike, and now all of a sudden the fiscal armageddon is doing. if the cuts are so bad. what is the president doing about it, has he proposed any cuts the way that the republicans did. make them more targeted, met with john boehner? no, he's going on and helping campaign events with first responders and talking to local tv anchors who won't ask tough questions like wasn't this your idea, mr. president? so, he is campaigning, rather nan leading and he should be governing, not going out there trying to blame the republicans for his own creation. >> megyn: you know, simon, to hear the president tell it you would think he has nothing to do with the sequester. >> i don't think that's tru
-- another look at another set of numbers. hillary clinton, now the former secretary of state, she signed up with a walker agency, and we're taking a look at her speaking fees. here is a quick rundown. she is likely to make in excess of $200,000 per speaking agent through the head -- through the harry walker agency. her salary for secretary of state was $186,000 record -- $186,000. the salary of president obama, the same since 2001, four hundred thousand dollars. you can read more by logging onto nikki, from alabama. will sequestration matter? caller: how can the republicans say that sequestration is such a big concern to them, and they have taken it, and they have gone nuts tied up in all of these wars, and then they come back and they use this lie about how they are angaged? -- engaged? we do not need this. i'm just wondering, what is it that there really want? host:, for the call. inside the washington times -- thank you for the call. inside the washington times -- we could see a vote on that early next week, which means he could be sworn in by the latter half of n

's republican-led house shut down the government under the democratic president bill clinton, is there a president bush a hrea parallel here? >> there is somewhat of a parallel. there will be furloughs but the government won't be shut down. the government is funded through march 27th. there could be a deal to continue funding the government. republicans don't want a complete government shut down. come march 27th maybe they have a deal to both deal with the sequester and deal with funding the government. right now if congress does nothing, and it looks like that is going to happen the sequester will go into effect on friday. jon: let me point to you something else that rich lowry wrote, he says the sequester is designed to be crude and unappealing to all side, disproportionately and thoughtless lee hits defense spending and domestic discretionary spending. there is very little to recommend it other than it's actually a spending cut in washington where that is the rarest of creatures. republicans willing to get this thing go through hoping it gets us started down the road of bu
